Welcome to GWF2022!


GWF2022 is the 5th Annual Open Science Meeting of the Global Water Futures program. This year, we’re excited to bring you our second-ever, 3-day virtual meeting for water researchers across Canada.


GWF2022 brings together the GWF community (researchers, affiliates, partners, collaborators, and stakeholders), and wider water research community across Canada and beyond. We will share our latest scientific achievements and success stories from across our wide range of projects and program areas, and connect with stakeholders and communities alike to provide updates on end user solutions and support the actions needed to secure Canada’s water future. 


This meeting is open and free for all to attend – make sure to register to access all our programming!

Theme: Knowledge to Action

Managing and governing water futures – GWF research encompasses direct governance and management research as well as tools and models to support innovative water governance and management. Day 1 will focus on how GWF knowledge is/can be used towards changing approaches that better respond to climate change and the Sustainable Development Goals.

Water-related risk reduction – GWF is actively generating knowledge, models, and tools, to reduce risks faced by ecosystems, various economic sectors, and individuals and communities. Risk reduction is a clear and critical knowledge to action pathway within GWF.

Harnessing data and knowledge to improve water practice – GWF has invested in models, tools, apps, sensors, and scenarios. How are these being deployed to improve water practice and what other opportunities exist (e.g., artificial intelligence).
